President of the Opera House Magdy Saber said that the celebration will be attended by children and youth choirs of the Talent Development Center under the supervision of artist Abdel Wahab el-Sayed. The choirs will present a collection of national works loved by the Egyptian and Arab nationals.

The program consist of songs including “Besmellah” (In the name of God), “Ta’eeshy ya Beladi” (Long live my country), “Ahlef Besamaha” (I swear by its name), “Rayat el Nasr” (Victory flags), “Helwa Beladi” (My beautiful country), “Ya Shabab An el Awan” (It's about time), “Ya Aghla Esm fel Wogood” (Best name in the world), among others.

Sinai Liberation Day is a public holiday in Egypt celebrating the liberation of the land of Sinai from the Israeli occupation, where Egypt recovered the land of Sinai and the last Israeli soldier withdrew from the city of Taba in 1988.

This came in accordance with the international peace treaty of 1979 and the settlement of the long diplomatic disputes. On this day, Egyptians give tribute to the Egyptian officers and soldiers of the Armed Forces for their sacrifices which led to the recovery of Sinai.

This day also celebrates the beauty of Sinai which hosts many touristic cities like Sharm El Sheikh and Dahab, being popular destinations for Egyptians and tourists alike.
